1 Global Heat Waves on Fri Jun 05, 2015 11:12 pm



Parts of Europe see hottest day of the year so far in early-season heat wave

Posted on June 6, 2015 by The Extinction Protocol

June 2015EUROPE – Parts of Europe are sizzling on Friday as an early-season heat wave sweeps across the continent. The heat is not particularly intense or dangerous, but it’s pretty early the season for temperatures of this magnitude in northern Europe. Late-afternoon highs were surging into the low 90s, particularly in the Rhine River Valley in southwest Germany and eastern France.
Temperatures are steaming at as much as 25 degrees Fahrenheit above average for this time of year. Accuweather’s Eric Leister says that some cities, including Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt, are seeing their hottest temperatures of the year thus far. The heat and humidity was fueling a line of showers and thunderstorms that’s tracking east across northern Europe, with potential to impact the French Open on Friday evening.
The heat wave has likely reached its peak on Friday afternoon, though above-average temperatures will continue to spread south across Europe on Saturday into Sunday, but will regulate to highs closer to normal by early next week. Reuters reports that while the heat is making the tourists sweat in Paris, they don’t necessarily mind the brilliant blue sky. –Washington Post

Heat wave coming to Vancouver – city braces for “rare” early bout of record high temperatures

Posted on June 6, 2015 by The Extinction Protocol

June 2015VANCOUVER, Canada – Record-breaking temperatures are on the way for B.C. this weekend. CBC meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe says it will feel like 30 degrees or warmer on Saturday and Sunday across the southern part of the province. That is rare for this time of year, she says, and will likely break some records.
“This is pretty early on in the season to see these kinds of temperatures,” said Wagstaffe. For the next few days, onshore sea-breezes will cap temperatures in the mid-20s near the ocean, according to Environment Canada. Slightly inland, temperatures will hover near 30 degrees. The warm spell is not expected to last past mid-next week. Wagstaffe says it’s important people prepare themselves for the heat and watch for signs of heat stroke. “Because this is so much hotter than what we’re used to at this time of year, watch for symptoms of heat illness, dizziness, nausea, fainting and make sure to stay hydrated all weekend long.”
The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch says fires larger than a campfire are not permitted in mosts part of the province. “We’re just asking people to be very careful with fire use,” said Navi Saini, a spokeswoman with the Wildfire Management Branch. “It’s really important we do keep the human-caused wildfires down, just so we do have resources to respond to the naturally occurring wildfires.” –CBC

Insane heat wave in Alaska put temperatures higher than in Arizona

Posted on June 6, 2015 by The Extinction Protocol

June 2015ALASKA – Alaska, along with the rest of the Arctic, has been warming even faster than other regions of the world due to climate change. That was the findings of a report this spring from the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, which found that the rate of warming will only continue to increase in the coming decades. The signs of rapid warming in Alaska were everywhere this past winter. The Iditarod was moved north 300 miles to Fairbanks because Anchorage had record low snowfall. A ski resort outside of Juneau had to close because of low snowfall and warm temperatures that inhibited snow-making.
Now the 49th state experienced a heat wave at the end of May. Over Memorial Day weekend, while Texas was being inundated with floods, parts of Alaska were warmer than Arizona. On May 23 in Fairbanks, the temperature reached 86 degrees Fahrenheit, while Phoenix topped out at 83 for the day, reports Al Jazeera. Even the town of Bettles, which is north of Fairbanks and falls within the Arctic Circle, recorded a temperature of 82. That same day, Eagle, Alaska hit 91 degrees Fahrenheit, marking the earliest 90-degree day in state history, according to NASA Earth Observatory. And it wasn’t just one unusually warm day. “Between May 16 and May 24, Eagle hit 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher daily—its second longest such streak on record for any time of the year,” says Al Jazeera.
Even America’s northernmost city, Barrow, Alaska, set record high temperatures for four out of the six days between May 17-22, topping out at 47 degrees on May 21 (nearly 18 degrees above normal), The Weather Channel reports. This may sound like nothing compared to the current heat wave in India, “but north of the Arctic Circle, this is extreme warmth for late May,” says The Weather Channel. This particular heat wave in Alaska and northwestern Canada has to do with two typhoons altering the jet stream pattern.”A series of two western Pacific super typhoons—Noul and Dolphin—have done a number on the (jet stream) pattern across the north Pacific following their extratropical transition,” says Dr. Michael Ventrice, operational scientist at The Weather Channel Professional Division.
This “persistent high-pressure system … is but one consequence of a developing El Niño in the eastern Pacific,” says Al Jazeera. While El Niño may be exacerbating the warmth, the long term trend shows the Arctic will continue to warm from climate change. It has warmed faster than anywhere else in the world over the last 30 years. The effects of the warming are many-fold. Anchorage recorded its warmest April and it will probably be its least snowy season on record with only 25.1 inches of snow to date (its prior least snowy season was in 1957-1958 with 30.4 inches), according to The Weather Channel. The rapid snowmelt led to flooding in some areas and fire danger is already high in what experts worry might be the worst wildfire season yet. –Ecowatch
